While the original version of “WhatUWanna” appeared on French producer Dela’s album Translation Lost, DJ Spinna takes a stab at recreating the track with his own feel to it. Giving the mellowed original version a more 90’s hip-hop feel, Spinna’s remix makes great use of additional drums and horns. Having the track also serve as the announcement for Dela’s new/remastered edition of his Translation Lost album, we also find out that this DJ Spinna remix will be released as color 7″ vinyl record, limited to 500, out May 1. Dela’s reissue of Translation Lost is set to release May 15.

KopajOvo! kolektiv u sklopu Dana frankofonije predstavlja:

MC Fisto & The Architect (St. Etienne, FRA)
w/ DJ Jopa & gdin. Smeđi Šećer

Start: 21 h / Upad 10 kn

Po prvi put u Rijeci u sklopu godišnje manifestacije Dani Frankofonije, a u organizaciji KopajOvo! kolektiva u Klubu Place nastupa vrhunski francuski MC Fisto. Čovjek sa prstom u teglici soula i jazza, već 10 godina baca rime preko heavy sample based bitova duboko ukorijenjenih u tradiciji francuskog Hip Hopa.

U Hrvatsku dolazi prezentirati svoj prvi solo album “Futur Vintage” produciran od strane Soul Square-a i realiziranog u suradnji s DJ Atomom. Na albumu su također surađivali US reperi Othello i Raashan Ahmad, Britanski producent DJ Format i francuska soul pjevačica Dajla. Nije tajna da je Fistov rap pod teškim utjecajem druge zlatne ere US hip hopa, ali ako uzmete u obzir Fistovu geografsku lokaciju, potpuno nerazumljiv mellow flow na francuskom, nekoliko premaza neo soula i rezove DJ Architecta, znate da možete očekivati pravu “two turntables & a mic” soničnu poslasticu u Klubu Place.
